HOBART | A Hobart woman is $50,000 richer thanks to a winning scratch-off ticket from the Hoosier Lottery.
According to a press release issued by the Hoosier Lottery, Kelly Domikaitis told her son's fiance she was going to the gas station, "and I'm going to win $50,000."
Domikaitis purchased some Wild Cherry Crossword Tripler scratch-off tickets at Speedway, 4732 61st Ave in Hobart and one of them was, indeed, a $50,000 winner.
"I called my husband and started crying," Domikaitis said in the statement issued by Hoosier Lottery. "When I said I was going to win, I was just joking, trying to be positive. I never imagined in a million years that it would happen."
Domikaitis is changing careers and attending school full-time. She said the lottery winnings will help bridge the gap between school and going back to work.
"I'm in shock and I was numb," she said. "I just can't believe it. It's unreal to me."
The Hobart woman said she plans to take her family out for a steak dinner to celebrate.
